This is a beautiful chapel on the Washington and Lee campus. I can imagine that it would be an amazing place for a wedding or other special event.

we were totally surprised by the rich history and stories the volunteer guide offered. There is a museum in the basement and we didn't have the time to visit, and we will definitely return.
